Tons of people sell license plate holders that attach to the winch fairlead.

I'm not sure if the KO bumper comes with the fairlead, but would be a permanent solution that wouldn't require modifying the bumper.

We're working on getting a factory harness that is just plug and play but for now the lights just require you to cut into the factory fog wires and splice them in. Its really easy, and then your interior fog light switch acts to turn them on and off.

The original bumpers did have thinner tubing but we took our customers advice and began making them with .120 wall tubing. Any DV8 or KO product now has .120 wall tubing and the rock sliders have .180.

DV8Admin1 KO Offroad buys all of its bumpers from us here at DV8 and we 100% stand behind everything we make. If there is a problem we will work with KO to fix it immediately. Both KO offroad and ourselves are committed to making our customers satisfied. Glad you like the bumper it looks great!

Topek Waiting on selling my 4wheeler and picking up these bumpers for sure thanks everyone for you pic's and input
04-12-2014 05:43 PM
1tridad Love mine, front and back, easy install, certainly solid feeling but I haven't rammed into anything yet. Maybe the .055 explains 70lbs and not 100. Some advantage there. The service at oewheelsdirect on eBay was great. Someone pointed out the rear was crooked and with a phone call and some bolt adjustments or looked great.

The shipping was very fast. Very well packaged. Removing the old bumper took maybe 30 minutes and installing the new bumper took 15 minutes (with two guys). It came with all new hardware, and the powder coating looked great. Very good deal for the cash, they do sell quick.
The company name that actually makes the bumpers is called DV8 Off-road.

jerseywild KO offroad bumper on Ebay has a number you can talk to the guy. The bumper i just bought says 2011-2013 Jeeps do not require a vacuum pump relocation kit. These bumpers will fit with the vacuum pump at it's current location. Buy from KO Off Road who understands applied Off Road engineering and stands behind the quality of it's products for years to come.

sorry for late response. They have 2 square flat weld or bolt spots that to me seem adequate without need for a center one. I had them welded on and they are SOLID. The weld spots are not all the way to each end, rather they are more at about 12" in from the end where the support arm is on each side. I don't think a center support is needed IMO.

Ignore the stock wheels.
03-11-2014 12:29 AM
1tridad Do I just finished installing front and back Ko bumpers from oewheels or whatever they're called via eBay. Arrived in 5 days, really nicely packaged. Now I'm no welder, but these look beautiful and are definitely solid, a little over 70lbs each. The weld joints are smooth and the powder coating is even. Put them on solo which took about 4 hours (including removing oems) for both. Very easy, relatively smoothly for a non mechanic. I love them at least cosmetically so far. Haven't gotten them out on the beach yet. No winch or lights yet, and my lift ,tires ,and wheels aren't on , so no pics because it looks a bit ridiculous at this point. Hopefully have phase 1 complete with pics later this week

joe buell Innocentminx I like that Bumper I bought a Besttop stubby and the paint bubbled and peeled off in the first 6months and the d ring attachment on Drivers side crooked did not notice until after install long story short Best top customer service SUCKED DID NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT MY COMPLAINT and I sent pics . plain and simple people stay away from Best top garbage just my experience and opinion .
02-15-2014 09:41 PM
InnocentMinx Ok. So I finally got my KO Offroad bumper. There was a slight shipping mishap and UPS tore up the box and damaged the first one sent. The seller made everything right immediately and shipped a new one. When I received it, the packaging was extra beefy. He did a great job.

Outside of my own weak girl moment of getting the original bumper unbolted, the installation went fine. After 2 hours of trying to undo bolts i was defeated by the wrench. I took it to a shop and they said it was a perfect fit!! I absolutely love the bumper.
